Today’s news that the micro-blogging website will hoover up Mixer Labs, a company started by two Google employees, means Twitter users will soon be able to show where they are when they post their tweets.People on the site will also be able to track where notable events are taking place, from parties to serious or newsworthy incidents.

A statement on the company’s blog said: "We want to know what’s happening, and more precisely, where is it happening.

“As a dramatic example, twittering ‘Earthquake!’ alone is not as informative as ‘Earthquake!’ coupled with your current location."
